User Deactivation

There is an option to deactivate user in case of e.g. termination of cooperation. Remember you can activate this user again any time.

Deactivated users are visible by their striped icon avatar. 

Description of the deactivated user:

  • will not be counted to the amount of KanBo licenses if he has been deactivated from every Board Collection in your KanBo,
  • has no access to a Board Collection where he has been deactivated from,
  • is not visible in Active users list in Board’s User Center,
